Re: CPORT???

I suspect the odds are slim, but you never know if you don't ask. I suspected that the odds were slim, so I'll take the dearth of replies as evidence that CPORT is long gone, missing in action, no longer able to be seen. :( Shame, this means that I'll have to think about writing my own now, sigh! ;...

Re: q-liberator

Hi Jon,

I did it late last night and Dilwyn has new copies of the doc and pdf files that include chapter 15.

He should be uploading at some point soon.


Cheers,
Norm.

Re: Theme file format

I agree, the flag and version word makes sense, especially as it could happen that progress takes us on to new versions of wman etc with a different number of words required for a theme. Unlikely, I admit, but still possible. We could increment the version then to ensure, along with flen, that we ar...

You can download my book from http://qdosmsq.dunbar-it.co.uk/downloads/QLToday/QL_Assembly.pdf and checkou...

CPORT???

Afternoon All, I used to have CPORT on my hard drive for QPC2 but for some reason I seem to have deleted it, plus, my original disc - floppy - is no more having been one of hundreds that no longer worked. Luckily I have working copies of the DP Collection, so I'm able to get it back from there! Phew...

Re: A guide to programming the Sinclair QL

Norman, Norman, Norman, You had to be so bold .... :-) Recompiling is a form of porting, just a trivial form. Just a semantics. Maybe. Possibly. But I respectfully disagree! Now, converting C to/from Basic as Steve mentioned is not trivial and I'm not sure if it is necessary. On this, we agree. In ...

Re: Pyramide Software - Some Freeware

Hi Martin,

did you check what the screen base address was in 128kb and 384kb modes? If it moved addresses then that could be a reason for drawing problems.

DJToolkit, Minerva etc have funtions to return the screen address, if you don't have something suitable.

Cheers,
Norm.

Re: Pyramide Software - Some Freeware

Hi Martin,

that sounds like someone has hard coded the screen base address to me!

Re: A guide to programming the Sinclair QL

Hi Tim, "IIRC, there are tools like QT that allow for porting graphical programs from one environment to another (like Windows to Linux). If I may be so bold as to correct you ... Qt, wxWidgets, Fox Toolkit etc exist not to assist in porting graphical programs from one OS to another, they are u...
